The last thing Kei remembers is the train running over his body, crushing him. Now he finds himself in a room filled with strangers, all recently deceased, all resurrected by the strange black sphere known only as Gantz.
Their reprieve from death may only be temporary, however. Unless they complete the brutal missions that Gantz assigns, none of them will live long enough to leave the room. Is this strange "afterlife" real, or just a dream? All Kei and the others know is that if they fail the mission, they will all die again.

"No matter how you look at it, "Gantz" is going to be one of the big names in 2005. The animation, action, and sheer violence will grab you by the shirt collar and bitch slap you silly" - DVD Vision Japan
"Gantz isn't just going to be one of the highlight of early (2005,) its going to be one the anime series that stays in the consciousness of anime fans... strikes with full force, keeping the viewer off balance and enthralled, never sure when things are going to go to hell or how bad it’s going to be." - Ain’t It Cool News
"The show is just too cool for words… after watching the disc once it’ll leave you mouth agape and frothing for more." - Dub Review
"Since the dawn of science fiction, the premise of man versus alien has always been popular in pop culture, but never did it have so much animated violence and nudity… until now." - Anime News Network
"What will undoubtedly be the most controversial anime of the year has finally been released. It is not a show for the faint of heart, but what a roller coaster of violence and emotion it is! One of the biggest releases of 2005…" - Anime Fringe
"Oh yes, there's blood and guts and gore and sex and you name it in the Gantz series, which is why it's so awesome… It's well written, thoughtful, and has a coolness factor that is unmatched by anything I've seen in a really long time. This is one series you should definitely add to your collection once it's released, because as a whole, it's just utterly amazing." - Rogue Cinema
